Our Aspiration

Our Aspiration

  • We will achieve breakthrough results as a DEI leader in all that we do – for our people, our business, and our community.

For more than 30 years, Bain & Company has invested in and expanded our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. From our early affinity group communities to professional learning designed to mitigate the impact of unconscious bias, we are building a culture of inclusion where every Bainie can thrive. Today, we are united by a broader ambition and global, regional, and local goals that reflect our multicultural and multidimensional firm. We believe the best results come from diverse and inclusive teams in which belonging, support, and trust, fuel us all every day.

In 2020, we established a global ambition – and then further elevated our dedication – by formally committing to embed diversity, equity and inclusion across Bain through engagement, education and the mobilization of our entire workforce.

We have been recognized for our culture of equity, inclusion and our long-standing commitment to DEI.

Since 2006, we have earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index, which benchmarks policies, practices and benefits for LGBTQ employees. Bain is ranked as one of Fortune's Best Workplaces for Women. And in 2021, Mogul recognized Bain in their list of Top 100 Workplaces for Diverse Representation and Top 100 Workplaces with the Best D&I Initiatives.

As part of our commitment, we published our first annual DEI Report in 2021, taking an honest look at our global efforts to accelerate outcomes. We are proud to share more detailed global data this year –going beyond the U.S. to provide regional data for all the Americas, as well as EMEA and APAC. Globally, our representation of women and those who identify as nonbinary continues to grow – both overall and at the leadership level – where we have exceeded 30% for the first time. Additionally, our newest Bainies are more diverse than ever. In the U.S., for example, 45% of new hires identify as Black, Latinx, Asian, or multiracial, and almost 50% identify as women or nonbinary. We are also expanding our efforts to accelerate progress for diverse representation within our leadership team by ensuring retention and the development of a pipeline of diverse future leaders.
